One reason why glycolysis is reduced in chronic alcohol users could be that the cells do not contain enough of the starting material, glucose, Glucose can either be imported into the hepatocyte from the blood by specific transport molecules located in the hepatocyte membrane, or it can be generated inside the hepatocyte by breaking down a very large molecule called glycogen, which serves as a storage form of glucose in liver and other cells.
